Her Instagram post says, “This guy passed away today. Thank you to everyone who has sent so many goodies, doggy treats, toys, clothes, paintings, stuffed animals, and everything else over the years. He loved being famous and getting recognized, especially without me. So many people loved him, and I really appreciate that and so did he.”

Handler rescued Chunk, a German Shepherd-Chow mix, in 2009 from a kill shelter when he was 9. He was with her everywhere she went – her dressing rooms, her talk show, and by her side when she was home.
